3 of Our Favourite Places…Lo de Marcos/Sayulita/San Pancho

By Remy ( photos by Liz) Having reacquainted ourselves with life in San Pancho (after a two-year absence) it was time for us to settle in and become hosts ourselves. But first, we had to take up Liz and Miguel on their offer of hospitality at Miguel’s “Scarface”-worthy family villa on the shore at PlayaContinue reading “3 of Our Favourite Places…Lo de Marcos/Sayulita/San Pancho”

Making Our Way to Our Happy Place. Mazatlan to San Pancho

By Remy ( photos by Liz) Like a couple of rubes freshly fallen off the turnip truck, we rolled off the ferry at Mazatlán and into the hustle and colour of “la República”, as the mainland is known in the hinterlands of Baja California. We were to land in the lap of luxury too, havingContinue reading “Making Our Way to Our Happy Place. Mazatlan to San Pancho”

Overland and Over Sea-Cabo to Mazatlan

By Remy ( photos by Liz) We finally reached the end of the road in Baja California – Cabo San Lucas! We had visited here many years ago on a visit with our sons, and had not formed a very favourable impression of “Cabo” at that time. Our minds were changed on this trip, however,Continue reading “Overland and Over Sea-Cabo to Mazatlan”

Baja Bound… Mexicali to Cabo 1511 Km

Swamps, Deserts and Shuffleboard Louisiana, Texas, Arizona

We had had faint glimpses of this in Alabama and Mississippi, but to be in the delta of the Mississippi River seemed like we wereContinue reading “Swamps, Deserts and Shuffleboard Louisiana, Texas, Arizona”

Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee. The Deep Deep South

By Remy ( photos by Liz ) Having finally eradicated “Sweet Georgia Brown” from our mental sound tracks, Lynyrd Skynyrd moved in with a new ear worm as we crossed in to Alabama. We were now on a mission to be in Memphis on December 3rd for the Chris Stapleton concert so we could notContinue reading “Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee. The Deep Deep South”

It’s Like Comparing Peaches and Oranges! – Georgia and Florida

By Remy ( Photos by Liz ) With the Harlem Globetrotters ear worm of a theme song playing in our heads we plunged into the Deep South (the Southern South?). We had already encountered live oak in our travels through the Carolinas, but in Georgia they are king. These trees, which grow wider than theyContinue reading “It’s Like Comparing Peaches and Oranges! – Georgia and Florida”

The Importance of Friends and Family

By Remy ( Photos by Liz) We had stuck it out in Nova Scotia as long as we could, and now it was time to make a dash through what the locals call “the drive-through province”, New Brunswick. This moniker refers to the fact that many people dash through this working province to take inContinue reading “The Importance of Friends and Family”
